Every year, technology is coming into its own and “transforming” the way we think, live and conduct business. Good economy or bad, the pace unrelentingly accelerates. Hardware and software have been replaced by virtual infrastructure. No industry is immune from this wave. Across many sectors of the economy, EUCI is devoted to chronicling the path and trajectory of the ways in which technology is re-shaping specific industries, in both dollars and sense.
Electric power transmission is the bulk movement of electrical energy from a power plant to a substation. The interconnected lines that move the electricity, also known as “the grid,” change the low voltage that’s produced through generation into a high voltage so electricity can travel over long distances. It can be transmitted through overhead and underground lines and are comprised of power lines, cables, circuit breakers, switches and transformers and is administered on a regional basis.
Simple though it seems, ubiquitous as it must be, transmission technology still demands meticulous execution – which is why it is likely the most completely covered of all EUCI programming.
This is the final stage of the electricity delivery process, which completes the movement of electricity from the distribution substation to the end users, whether they be industrial, commercial, or residential. The distribution system has underground and overhead portions comprised of transformers, primary and secondary circuits, switches, system communication components, voltage regulators, and other system protection equipment.
The local dimension of the power delivery system is in the midst of its own journey, as it contorts from a traditional, centralized, one-way power flow to the more distributed paradigm of renewable energy resources, batteries and the like. The distribution system’s most interesting history lies ahead, and EUCI is chronicling that transition.
